Lemonade in Winter
A Book About Two Kids Counting Money
Publication Date: September 11, 2012
In a starred review, Publishers Weekly declared this delightful picture book "a beautifully restrained tribute to trust and tenderness shared by siblings; an entrepreneurship how-to that celebrates the thrill of the marketplace without shying away from its cold realities; and a parable about persistence."
A lemonade stand in winter? Yes, that's exactly what Pauline and John-John intend to have, selling lemonade and limeade--and also lemon-limeade. With a catchy refrain (Lemon lemon LIME, Lemon LIMEADE! Lemon lemon LIME, Lemon LEMONADE!), plus simple math concepts throughout, here is a read-aloud that's great for storytime and classroom use, and is sure to be a hit among the legions of Jenkins and Karas fans.

G. BRIAN KARAS is the prolific, versatile, and award-winning illustrator of many books for children, including, most recently, Neville and Clever Jack Takes the Cake, which received four starred reviews.

“This quirky tale is a boon for young entrepreneurs, who will enjoy looking at the humorous details in the pictures as much as working out the math after each sale.”
Starred Review, Publishers Weekly, July 30, 2012:
“In real money terms, this one’s an amazing bargain.”
